Help....left hospital job

  1. I left my Med Surg position end of Jan 2018 because I was very unhappy with the culture at the hospital. I told my job that I was leaving for travel nursing. I did plan on working with travel agency & they told me to contact them when I was ready. I took some time off to remodel my home so that I can get it ready to place on the market. In middle of remodeling my husband had to get a shoulder replacement. So, here I am 6-7 months later & no RN job. The agency said I've been off floor too long. I'm concerned I will not be able to find a nursing job locally either because of the long gap. Not sure what to say in interviews. Usually I have a job lined up before leaving but I was so miserable & depressed that it was affecting me looking for another position. Advice please?

    Seven months doesn't seem like long at all. The length and type of experience you had before your break will probably be much more important.
